"Violence will only lead to more tensions and suffering," the Jordanian Foreign Ministry said in a statement, according to the kingdom's official news agency Petra.
"It is necessary to halt all condemned and rejected military operations against the [Gaza] Strip, whose people are suffering from an unacceptable humanitarian and life crisis due to Israel's unfair siege," the ministry added.
